Five Minutes in the Mind of a Runner

My mind works all day long...I bet I have at least 8 separate thoughts every minute. When I am running, I get to hear them all.

And here we go... Guitar strumming patterns, down up up down up up down up up up, camp fires, stars, the snow, sitting in my parents hot tub a few days ago in the snow, talking to my dad last night on my husbands cell phone, realizing I didn't know my husband's cell phone number, my husband changed the oil this morning, and bought me a frame for my new picture, my wedding, taking wedding pictures, the misunderstanding I had with my parents during wedding pictures, registering for the a marathon, races getting canceled due to whether, the last race I ran with my friends April and Stef, who wants to run a whole marathon?, would my sister ever run a race with me?, I don't think she wants to start running..., what's that smell, Windex, who sprayed so much Windex?, breathing in cleaning chemicals can't be good for a runner, open airways, old man with glasses is watching me, why is he here?, maybe he has a family member working out, I spot an old lady with a trainer, I decide she's the wife of old man with glasses, opps, 'scuse me, track etiquette, gym etiquette, manners, folding cloth napkins like an accordion, watching YouTube videos on napkin folding, why would someone wear a stocking hat on the track, wrestlers cutting weight, watching Michael Roggeman spit in a garbage can during 8th grade English the night of a big wrestling meet...

Random, yes. But my mind is the most comfortable place I can possibly be.
